3rd Edition - Keeps getting better!
I bought the first two editions and were impressed with them. The depth of knowledge and the sample applications showed the author put time into digging into the intermediate to advanced topics on building on Microsoft's technologies. With the 3rd edition, I was blown away. It's huge and there is a lot of information to digest. Since I work with both Exchange/Outlook and SharePoint, I especially liked that this book covered both topics (download the SharePoint chapters from the website for the book!). If you are going to buy one book on developing on Microsoft's collaboration technologies, this is the one. I can't wait for the 4th edition.

Generally, I purchase a programming book either as a tutorial, or as a reference. Unfortunately, in either of these two respects, this book disappoints. Usually MS Press books are pretty good. However, this one makes a poor tutorial, and is not that useful as a reference.
That bad news is that there are not that many books out there that deal with programming Exchange.

One stop shopping
First, this book is big. Over 1000 pages!!! However, the author has done a great job covering the breadth of collaborative technologies that you can program against. Plus, the samples on the CD provide some great code that you can steal for your own applications. I also use the ebook version as a quick way to search for info I need quickly. In short, you should get this book if you're building collaborative solutions on the Microsoft platform.
